About > How to Participate

Step 1:

Register to gain access to the system.  You must register to access module tools, resources, reporting forms, and/or to earn Diamond status.  Users should register to View Only or to Participate for Diamond status:
  • View Only - provides access to module tools & resources
  • Participate for Diamond Status - provides full site access, including access to module tools, resources, reporting forms, certificates, and enables user to earn Diamond status

Step 2:

Once you've received confirmation that you are registered, you may begin working on the mandatory module Patient Safety Principles.  This module is a mandatory first module for all participants, each program year.  This module should be completed within three months of submitting your application and must be completed by 100% of entire staff, including facility Dietitians, Management, Nurses, Medical Directors, Social Workers, and Technicians.

Step 3:

Gather and summarize any necessary supporting documentation for the module (i.e. questionnaires, pre- or post-tests, etc.) and access the reporting form for the module.  

Step 4:

Complete and submit the module's reporting form, entering required summary data and/or uploading/submitting any documents the module requires.

Step 5:

Monitor your email for an update regarding the status of the submission.  Updates to module status can be viewed on your Summary page (under the Participants menu tab; upon log-in). 

Step 6:

The module will be reviewed by Network Management/National Office for completion and to ensure module measures have been met.  Once approved, you will earn a Diamond and be able to print your module certificate.*
*Module certificates cannot be printed until after the mandatory Patient Safety Principles module has been completed, thus it is advisable to complete that module first.

Step 7:

Begin working on your next module!

Step 8:  **NEW**

Upon completion of your last module, you will be required to complete a Program Review.  The Program Review consists of your entire staff completing the mandatory Safety Attitude Questionnaire (SAQ) Post-Test and summarizing the response data via an online reporting form.  The program is looking to measure growth in the culture of safety from when facilities began the program through completion.  Once the Program Review is complete, you may access and print your 5th Diamond certificate from your Summary page.
